FWIW, Rusty was on the Bulldog Roundtable show this morning & said we have 3 open slots plus one more for Solomon if needed. We are currently at 23, so it looks like 27 is the max number per Mansell...

27 seems to be the number that has been repeated elsewhere as well (I know it was in Sentell's scholarship article a week ago or so).

Not really that messed up. The numeric "rating" is probably a better way of comparing from year to year than the star system but even still it's going to be relative to the guys they're competing against. Think of it like grading on a curve. Someone's getting an A... even if it might have been a B-/C+ in years past. On the other hand you might have guys that are probably talented enough to be 5* but get pushed down to depth (see this year).


This is what I see, too. I look at the ranking number more than I do the stars. There is a difference between a high 4 star and low 4 star. Anything 94+ makes me think of an impact player as an undergraduate.

Ameer Speed is getting a visit from Kirby, Schumann, and Tucker tomorrow. I really hope we end up getting this guy.

Anything to glean from the fact that Mark Webb still intends to take an OV to Penn State?

I wonder if this means we missed on one of our 'A priority' recruits

I wasn't sure if he would still take the visit since his cousin Swift cancelled all of his and they say they are playing together.

imo I don't see Speed as being a backup plan. His size and physicality is just something you don't see much in corners. He also has a very impressive offer list, which I tend to put more stock in compared to how many stars somebody has.

Other than Jamyest and AJ Terrell, can't think of many "A" cornerbacks we were in on.

Sumter,

I agree with you speed looks like he could help out here at Georgia. So he is a three star. The stars are just stupid grading that the recruiting sites have come up with. Seen many four and five star bust. Look and JJ Watt he was a 2 star coming out of high school, and Pollack was a 3 star. They ending up doing well. All the star ranking does not measure the heart and determination of a person.

77 percent of alabama's roster is 4 or 5 star.... it doesn't matter on the field sure, but these recruiting services are pretty good at what they do.

I agree on a macro level- but I look to the offer list more so now. If a 3* has offers from Bama, Clemson, FSU, AU, etc., that means more than a 4* who doesn't. I also think the "star" system is a big disadvantage to the kid who grew 5 inches and added 45 lbs. before his Sr year.

Imo, for your methodology to work, you would need to identify "commitable" offers from "sling 200+ offers around the country to show the prospect that we may be interested" offers.

With that said, I know nothing about Speed, so I don't have anything to contribute on his particular case.

You know you are a good player when these dudes show up.

lol

In all honesty though, I hope we can fend off the Bama push. I hope the week with our boys sealed the deal.

Seen many a 4 and 5 star bust, sure. I've also seen many a 4 and 5 star turn out to be program changers. Evidence shows, you load up on 4 and 5 stars and your on-field success goes way up. Load up on 2 and 3 stars. Well...
